Instances of inappropriate behavior on college and university campuses have been making news lately. Many schools are having to answer for an atmosphere that supposedly fails to protect their students from sexual assault. A recent claim, however, brings to light another side to the story that advocates fail to talk to about -- false claims.
The East Tennessee State University's Department of Public Safety recently received a complaint from a female student that a male student with whom she was acquainted had sexually assaulted her. The alleged attack supposedly took place on Sept. 14 in one of the university's buildings where classes take place. Later, the female student recanted her story and admitted that the assault never took place.
